Cristiano Ronaldo's stunning overhead bicycle kick for his previous Real Madrid against current club Juventus has been voted UEFA's goal of the season.
The striker beat competition from 11 nominees for the award in honour of his goal in last season's Champions League quarter-final first leg in Turin.
"Thanks to everyone who voted for me. Will never forget that moment, specially the reaction of the fans in the stadium," the 33-year-old Portuguese said on Twitter.
Ronaldo said it was "the best goal" of his career and it helped Real to a 3-0 win on the night and moved them a step closer to an eventual quarter-final victory over Juve.
The Spanish club went on to win the competition for the third consecutive season.
